Went to Kollam by Trivandrum Mail and from Kollam by bus to Thenmala. The train was late by nearly one hour due to works being done at Kottayam. The train journey was comfortable. Best to buy food before hand itself as no vendors came with food and we had to buy food from Kollam.

Kollam Junction Route: Bangalore ––› Varkala
I boarded Kochuvelli express from majestic railway station at 5PM and I was supposed to reach Kollam by early morning. Kollam is around 30 kms from Varkala, so public transport is available from there. Kanyakumari express from Bangalore goes directly to Varkala railway station, but tickets should be booked around a month back. Train got delayed by 6 hours. Train running late was rather a boon, I got to see Kerala countryside from my train window. It was beautiful. Although I had to cancel my plans for the day, it seemed worth it.

Varkala will always hold a special place in my heart. It was my first and by far the best solo trip. I travelled during off-season and got pretty good deals on hotels. The whole trip cost me 3. 5k. It includes travel to and fro Varkala from Bangalore, food (I mostly had Kerala food in local...more »

I started my journey from chengannur in kerala express on 17-2-2016 at 1320 hrs. The compartment was with enough passengers & no rush in the sleeper coach. Food items & snacks were supplied by irctc staff. The rates of items are high but not tasty. The rates of the same items are less on major stations. Since the co-travellers were long journey parties enough company was there upto New Delhi. Spare time was utilised for card playing. The train reached New Delhi on 19-2-2016 at 14:45 hrs. My programme to reach Uttarkashi was through Dehradun. The train to Dehradun from Old Delhi railway station was at 21:20 hrs. Since reservation on sleeper was there no difficulty in journey. Next day morning at 08:20 hrs the train reached Dehradun.

From dehradun two access are there to reach Uttarkashi. Since the hill area starts no train service from Dehradun to Uttarkashi, only private operator bus service. Dehradun-Raipur-Rishikesh-Chamba-Uttarkashi is the best & the convenient route through which I returned from Uttarkashi. Towards Uttarkashi at the time of reach at bus station Dehradun, bus service through the opposite side route was ready. I continued my journey to Uttarkashi through this route.

The bus started from Dehradun at 11 hrs & reached Uttarkashi at 18:15 hrs. The bus service through this route is not so convenient due to narrow, steep, zig zag roads constructed on sky scraper hills. Moreover shops & peoples are limited in this area. Out of the 204 kms from Dehradun to Uttarkashi 150 km are through this narrow steep zigzag mountain roads. Since it is winter season limited water flow was there in the rivers between the hills through which we are travelling. In this connection I recommend visitors going to Uttarkashi can select bus service through raipur rishikesh & chamba. Than the opposite gigantic heavy hill route. Through which I travelled. Which was a risky one.

Kollam Junction Route: Kollam (Quilon) ––› Dwarka
I started my journey from Kollam on hapa express coming from thirunelveli on 7-12-2015. The reservation was on sleeper compartment & reservation was up to rajkot in gujarat. The train left Kollam at 11.55 hrs & the compartment was with enough passengers. The IRCTC staff supplied food & snack items on scheduled times but the items were not so tasty. The charge of irctc items are high now comparing to platform rates. The spare times were spent for pleasant conversations with fellow travellers. No sort of difficulty was experienced in any part of the journey. The train reached rajkot on 3rd day at 3.30 hrs. The routine cleaning works were taken from the retiring room of rajkot & started to dwarka on rajkot- dwarka passenger train leaving rajkot on 7 am. Since reservation was there no difficulty in journey. Without any delay the train reached dwarka at 12.15 am the scheduled time.

Kollam Junction Route: Thane ––› Kerala
32 hours of painstaking journey came to an end on a good note that it rained when we alighted off the train. As usual even though we had booked well in advance our berths were well apart from each other luckily in the same bogie. Consolation was that we got good food to eat. We had our packets from home but those were not sufficient for the long journey. Train had a pantry which catered to our belly needs properly. The food quality was good.

From chengannur on 24/9/2015 I got Kerala express at 1320 hrs. The compartment was filled with enough passengers from Kollam & Thiruvananthapuram & no question of loneliness. Food items were supplied by irctc staff but the charge of train pantry car is high compared to railway station charges. Vegetable meals costs Rs 120/- in the train but it is Rs 50/- on rly stations. No quality increase in pantry food.

Leisure time was spent by card playing. The train reached new delhi on 26/9/2015 at 1645 hrs against the scheduled time of 1345. Journey via Delhi is a long route but I selected this route since I have to meet a friend working at Delhi parliament. On 26/9/2015 at 2340 hrs I got train from Delhi Brahmaputra mail to New jalpaiguri in west bengal. The train was filled with passengers coming from Assam & going to Delhi for business shopping purposes hence it was full. The train reached New Jalpaiguri on 28/9/2015 at 1045 hrs against the scheduled time of 0445 hrs.

Got an auto taxi from railway station to Siliguri town at a distance of 8kms (Rs/-20/-) From Siliguri West Bengal State Road Transport service & private tata sumo service are available. To darjeeling Tata sumo service costs Rs130/- Running time 3hrs compared to be less than transport bus time. Private service started at 1400 hrs & reached Darjeeling at 1700 hrs. At 1630 hrs mist began to spread and at 1700 hrs full cold was effected. Hence tourists may start their journey to darjeeling after 0700hrs from siliguri & to reach darjeeling before 1700 hrs. I did not find any difficulty while travelling in the tata sumo running through the steep zig zag hill NH 55 road since the driving is with full caution & the drivers are experts.

The return journey was through the feasible shortest route. Darjeeling to siliguri tata sumo Siliguri to new Jalpaiguri tempo taxi new jalpaiguri to chengannur via train Guwahati thiruvananthapuram super express 12048 via Howrah, Bhubaneswar, Visakhapatnam Vijayawada, Chennai, Ernakulam, Chengannur. No difficulty in any part of the journey. The only difficulty was the delay for train to reach destinations.

Kollam Junction Route: Kollam (Quilon) ––› Khajuraho
I got Kerala Express from Chengannoor on 4th March 2015 at 13:25 hr. The train was almost loaded and good company peoples were there for Delhi journey. The spare time was spent by card playing. The food items supplied by the catering unit was somewhat satisfactory. The train reached at Jhansi on 6th March 2015 at 07:15 hr. From there the train to Khajuraho was at 14:30 hr. The train was 1.5 hr late and so it reached at Khajuraho at 20:30 hr. No difficulty in any part of the journey.

Kollam Junction Route: Kollam (Quilon) ––› Bangalore
Bangalore Express starts from Kanykumari and it has limited stops in which the trip doesn't seems boring. I was travelling in 2nd Ac and the coach was very neat and was in good condition. Surprisingly the toilet was very tidy and the caterers provided food at the proper time and the blankets provided were also very neat.

Kollam Junction Route: Kollam (Quilon) ––› Madurai
We got the train from Schencottah on 20th December, 2014 at 06:30 pm in Pothigai Express which was going to Chennai. Glad to say that all the nook and corner of the compartments were swiped well and cleaned well. The compartments were not fully loaded from Schencottah but before reaching Madurai the seats were fully loaded. Food items supplied by the selling agents were not bad. The express reached Madurai at 09:35 hrs and the journey was pleasant.

Kollam Junction Route: Kollam (Quilon) ––› Bangalore
The train offers good value for money. The cleanliness is average. It needs improvement I am sure! The pantry is there, but I would suggest you carry food from home. That way it is safe. The security aspect in the train is well taken care of, and you can feel safe inside!
